* InventionalWisdom: In "The Muckster", Jane orders the titular invention to help her clean her messy house for her appearance on ''The House and Home Show'', with specific instructions from the Cat in the Hat and the Little Cats never to turn the dial to 6.

Added DiffLines:

* SleepAesop: In "The Cat in the Hat Takes a Nap", Terrence [=McBird=] is a bit cranky, so the Cat suggests he take a nap. Terrence initially refuses as he is a bird and it's cats who are known for sleeping a lot, but with the help from the Cat in the Hat and the Little Cats, he learns the importance of taking a nap. In the Wubbulous World, we get to see everyone's dreams and meet the Yapper-Nap, a creature who looks scary but turns out to just be tired, so Sarah Hall-Small sings a lullaby to help him sleep.

* UnsuccessfulPetAdoption: In the first episode, "The Gink", Eliza Jane wants to keep a Gink (which is a cross between a Gunk and a skink) as a pet. The Cat in the Hat sings to her to adopt a different sort of pet because although Ginks can be pets, they require a lot of attention. When Eliza adopts a pet, she becomes too busy for her friends and eventually, the Gink grows homesick, so she puts him in the jungle but promises to visit him.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalDumbass: The Wickershams tend to be portrayed as clumsy louts who talk in HulkSpeak.

* {{Jerkass}}: The Grinch and Yertle expectedly take the role of antagonists, though with PetTheDog moments here and there.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Jane Kangaroo can be overbearing and close minded like her book counterpart, but does care about her son and sometimes feels bad when she crosses the line.
